Greetings,

Time-sert kits can save an otherwise scrap casing but they do need to be fitted with care and the kits can be expensive for a one off repair.

Take a look at the following video link as it will show you the process

;http://www.threadrepairkits.co.uk/timesert%20kits%20for%20sale.htm

You could use a professional mobile repairer such as the one on this link (I do not know this company so I can not comment upon the quality of their work) or a friendly local engineering company. Let us know the area in which you live and probably one of the other members local to you can recommend a company.

Worth sell the kits and perhaps their local store to you might know of an engineering company who could do the job for you;

I fit drain plugs with a fresh sealing washer and tighten them less than the recommended torque but I drill the head of the drain bolt and use lock wire to prevent it from coming loose. Hope these comments and links help.

TTFN

Hugh.

Can you use a magnet to drag it over to the oil drain hole?

Removing it should be okay, with the circlips wrench and the finger I'm able to pull it off, then I just need to force a bit to make it pass the hole. I've ordered a nice flexible magnet in case it breaks when I remove it.

I live in Bracknell (berkshire), I've contacted http://threaddoctorservicesltd.co.uk/, but they are on holiday until the 9/02 :-(. I've contacted http://sharpautos.co.uk/broken-bolt-rem ... ad-repair/ as well. And a few motorcycle shops.

Indeed, it pulled me off a bit, and I don't want to test it for the first time on an engine :o
